in arizona. hello. caller: i can see this going on in great britain, i guess the police are involved. but then they are doing it for us in the same manner. scanning e-mails, looking for certain words and what ever. i do not see any difference. i mean, they are exchanging information, but the fact that the government is concerned in one place and not the other is somewhat humorous or dreadful, depending on your point of view. host: thank you for calling the idea this morning. a bit more from the can paulson editorial this morning. every news organization host: next call on the british phone hacking scandal and its impact comes from denver. hello. caller: i'd think it has been going on for a long time in america. the sponsors, rep john de gaulle, michigan, and republicans worked together with the chamber of commerce to defeat it in 1997. him and reagan had health plans to take $1,900,000 in total compensation and resigned. his three underlings took almost 1100 million dollars. host: tie this into what we are talking about. caller: i think that this is going on for a long time. where do
to show you their coverage. caller: i appreciate that. it exposes us to what is going on in britain, which i think affects us here. we have rupert murdoch controls news of but -- "news of the world," and he controls "wall street journal." it seems to me since he took over "wall street journal," it has kind of slanted, not doing the reporting that it used to do. the other issue i wanted to bring up and i'm wondering if down the road you can do the programming on it, i read that eric cantor in his investment portfolio is betting against the dollar. i don't understand, if you could do research and have somebody do a program about that. if the second highest ranking person in the house, how could you be betting against the dollar in your investment portfolio? i know his wife works for bank of america. but this is crazy. if you guys can look into that and maybe do a program -- and on the 14th amendment, and maybe invite someone to explain to us how the 14th amendment and the 11th amendment, so we can -- mostly i get my information from c-span and if you guys could go back to giving us informati
? >> britain is not in the euro and while i am prime minister, it will never be in the euro so we should not be involved in those internal arrangements. only eurozone countries were involved. only eurozone countries have been involved about further bailouts. it is right not to use the european financial stability mechanism for future support to greece. >> what discussions did he have about preparing for that the fault? in particular with the president who has said in the context of departure from the euro and the devolution of the monetary union, it does not have to be disorderly. >> what is causing disorder as instability in europe. it is the fact that cannot be changed. if greece can default. good money will be wasted failure of greece. why wasn't the prime minister your normal skeptical self and lead an orderly withdrawal? >> checks seem to be a it endangers species sincethey were in terminal decline. the council said there is no alternative. the council did not look too happy when they came before the treasury committee. >> it is a imperative as working to have a viable set of of tre
reigning in the indefensible and criminal on occasion behavior of some members of the press in britain and i think this is true around the world. so retaining the freedoms which are not enshrined in the british institution in the way they are in the american institution. host: here is prime minister camera address and what will be looked into when it comes to how the media does its business. >> i think the problem here is that is not a paper about the practices. what needs to change is not the name of the newspaper, the title come or the letter had. what needs to change are the practices that go on and make sure they are all legal and properly managed. that is the challenge. it is not for me to say what papers remain open and close, but it is for me to set up the processes, these inquiries to make sure we learn lessons in these things did not happen again. host: mr. edgecliffe-johnson, anything you'd like to add to that? guest: he said that it is important for the media to be able to speak truth to power, but it is also important for those in power to feel like they can seek truth in t

will it be, as far as i know. the scandal unfolding in great britain right now is interesting. it is upsetting to the extent that people had their personal voice mails listened to end in some cases the leaded. that is over the top. on the other hand, i have to say that a lot of the outrage seems politically motivated. virtually everyone in the press is liberal and they hate him because he is conservative. he is also resented for taking over a lot of companies. i would say that the violations of privacy that apparently took place, as a libertarian i am upset by that, pale in comparison to the ones that take place every day conducted by the u.s. government. who can look into your e-mail, telephone conversations, checking accounts, and no one says anything about it because it is done under the federal rubric of the war on terror. the rest of us sit by and allow it. we should not. if you are offended by what happens in great britain, you ought to be every bit or more offended by your government, which you are paying for, against your will in some cases, is doing the same thing. ho
of our nation's $14 trillion debt. not only from china but from great britain, saudi arabia and other places as well. admiral mullen, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff have called the national can he tell the single biggest threat to our national security. and for the first time in modern history last year's congress passed no budget, no fundamental blueprint for federal spending and no final decision on spending levels through the appropriations process for the entire fiscal year. we've been operating under a series of continuing resolutions which has led to uncertainty as to federal levels of spending and as to tax rates which in turn has led to a lack of hiring in the private sector with an unemployment rate of 9.2% which in turn has led to less revenues in federal coffers, a vicious cycle that cannot continue. any agreement to president obama's request to increase our borrowing limit should include a real plan to bring our fiscal house in order and reduce the nation's unsustainably high levels of federal spending, of debt and deficits. this should include substantial reduc
made -- britain is that the supreme court has made it clear the ability to raise and spend money is really a first amendment right and that is -- doesn't mean that you can't have some constraints, but i think they've made very clear and rulings throughout the last 34 years that you cannot put constraints on the ability to go out, talk about politics, run your campaign. now, one development has been that a lot of candidates now do supposedly testing the waters, you know, they start running for president within days, it seems, after the last election. and what happens is they have gotten very coy about when they actually form their presidential campaign exploratory committee. they actually test the waters before they actually test the waters. and it does make -- you have this feeling of the perpetual campaign. but given our court system, given our -- the way that campaign finance and laws have been interpreted by this court over the years, i don't think there's really any constitutional way to say you cannot raise money and start competing. and the reason that people start running
